Shoetopia – Adjunct

Shoetopia – a veritable shoe heaven, will open its pearly gates to indulge your soles November 15th, 2013.  The sim design indeed is heavenly, a Utopia for shoe lovers.  Spread out in an open layout of two sims, with angelic archways and crystal blue skies, you are among the clouds as you venture through the shoe heaven.

At the heart of the event is SOLES4SOULS, the events charity of choice.  A bit about the charity:

Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.  The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.  Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance, and holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.

With the devastating damage in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, each participating designer will be offering up an item that will see 100% of its proceeds go directly to Soles4Souls, which is already hard at work aiding this catastrophic time.

The event is more than just a shopping spree, it is for a cause, and I hope that you will be a part of that.

My shoes are the exclusive item from ADJUNCT.  This highly detailed, exceptional penny loafer comes in three colors and an option for socks.  In addition ADJUNCT creator Josh Latham aka myvegancookbook has created a set of lively colored fun socks for you to add to your closet.

I wore penny loafers all through high school, even put the shiny copper penny in the tongue, so when I saw these I had to have them.  The leather quality is exceptional, just enough shine and a soft feel.  The fit is superb and no adjustments were required, the shoe is fantastic.  Add it to your collection for casual or formal needs.

Heading on over to The Men’s Department, the newest creation from Isla Gealach is a must have.  Cheeky Pea’s Nolan Foosball Table’s are a must have for any recreation room, bar or fun area.  Highly detailed materials enabled mesh, the foosball tables come in two different styles of wood, bare and painted as well as PG and Adult.  The Adult brings a whole new meaning to GOAL!

Also at TMD, MESHWORX has created these spicy pin – up covered Infinity tables and chairs.  Beautifully textured, smooth and minimalist with sexy pin – up girls decorating the surfaces, very unique and without saying a must buy!

Off to Collabor88 you will find the gorgeously spacious Industrial Loft from Barnesworth Anubis.  Barnes never fails to create something spectacular, detailed and unique.  I love the open bay windows that lead to a spacious patio.  The loft is very roomy and was perfect for a recreational room at Chez Raynier.  

FLOORPLAN brings fun to your home decor yet again at Collabor88 with the Eiffel Tower Marquee.  Multi-texture change on touch, beautiful detailing, this was a must have for my place as I am of French decent.  Its rather adorable and I plan to put it in little Raynier’s room when the time comes.

Ring a ding ding, time for doorbells!  Intrigue Company has doorbells for your decor needs this round of Collabor88.  I was a bit stumped at first where to place them, but the fireplace area was just perfect for them to be displayed.  In multiple metals, and three different styles these doorbells have tons of detail packed into them.  Put them at your door or use them in unique ways, they are truly “chiming”!

Additional non-event items can be found in the credits, have a great day!

Round My Hometown

My first memory of riding in a streetcar was when I was about five years old.  The green line from St. Charles into the French Quarter was my very first journey.  I recall we went to eat at the Camellia Grill on S Carrollton Ave of the River Bend area of New Orleans – a true staple that I miss greatly, now residing in Los Angeles.  I ordered the bananas foster pancakes, my favorite still to this day.  Once we had eaten, we boarded the streetcar and I recall finding the machine quite intriguing, for it looked like a train car and I kept referring to the driver as the conductor.

When I saw this great streetcar perusing flickr, I had to go see it for myself and it certainly brought back that memory of my first streetcar ride.  I miss the little things like this from my hometown, and though they are restructuring to have streetcars in Los Angeles again, it is just not the same as taking that journey down the hundred oak covered avenues of New Orleans.  If you ever get the chance, I encourage you to ride one.

The Men’s Department September – Let The Music Play

The September collection of the Men’s Department will be available on September 5th, just a few short days away!  With a new build, new logo design by Mikel Monk and a 3D version in world by Isla Gealach, TMD is going strong and the grid is all the better for it.

TMD is still one of my favorite events, because it is not limited to just male fashion, but does indeed get us gents nicely styled up!  Original creations abound and no matter what combination of items are offered, there is surely something you can take with you to enhance your SLife.

This amazing fedora from DECO was screaming my name, my love of hats and especially the fedora style made it a must have.  I really love the weathered band, making this hat say yeah, I’ve been around and seen some things!

The stellar bowling shirts from BlankLine are a must have for any gent, just look at the detail! Tons of colors to choose from, but we all know red is my personal favorite.

Labyrinth has this great skin called Silver, it is a TMD edition with a “Road Beard” which you have to see up close for its artsy detail.  Please try the demo before you buy, that way you can see for yourself if the beard will be your thing.

The boots I am wearing are from ADJUNCT, a favorite designer of mine since my first days here in SecondLife.  The Cactus FLower Boot has a beautiful stitching on the boot tip and the heel is wood just like my good old cowboy boots in real life.  Amazing detail and they go with just about anything.

The tattoo I wear is from a new shop to me called [Ner .Ink] Tattoo Store.  I really love the feather detail on the arms, it makes me think of flight and the freedom of winged beings from birds to angels.

All of this and much more will be available for this newest round of TMD, hope to see you there!

The Piano Man


This beautiful piano is Alouette’s creation for Collabor88 August 2nd birthday round. Alouette products are so beautiful, fluid and detailed original mesh that adds such realism to your home it truly is a pleasure to have any of the items enhance your home.

The pianos come in three different wood colors and worn versions.  Staying in line with this razzle dazzle 1920s theme, the piano is actually a player piano (also known as pianola or autopiano), which is a self-playing piano, containing a pneumatic or electro-mechanical mechanism that operates the piano action via pre-programmed music perforated paper, or in rare instances, metallic rolls.  The Alouette version has a true rotating mechanism which was a wonderful addition to this already beautifully created instrument.  The seat is full of animations that are fluid and adjustable.  A must have for any musician and home!

Choose Your Own Adventure

August 1st, that means faMESHed and I was an eager patron, when the clock struck midnight I headed over to get all the things and it was well worth it!

I was admittedly very excited and anxious for new ENTENTE items for faMESHed.  It is like adding extra whipped cream to a sundae to have the ENTENTE team creating new content for this already superb event.  Needless to say my first stop was to get this perfect new gillet aka tank top and massively detailed boots.  As always the ENTENTE gear has a wide array of textures to add to the base and that sure makes this Cajun one happy buyer.  A great feature that you can find with the faMESHed releases are fatpacks of the textures, very handy and worth the price!

I set out on a little adventure to explore some new places.  I jot down slurls when I read my fellow bloggers posts and peruse flickr, so I can venture out and see the great spots everyone else is discovering.  What are your current favorite sims right now?

It is almost Friday, I hope you have great plans laid out for the weekend and if not, that at the very least it is a nice relaxing time!
